Family Photos October 2011

A few of my favorites from this year's family photo shoot. Bill and I are absent because it was impossible for Bill to be available. I didn't mind a bit. I don't like taking pictures.

Christmas Miracle??? Not really - I'm just posting to my bog...

Sorry I am such an unreliable blogger. I guess I feel like I am too busy living life, to keep this up to date. So here is our year in review. Not many pictures, again I am terrible ;-)

Tate's 10th birthday! We alternate between family and friend birthday parties. This year was a family year, but Tate had friends over just to hang out.

Presents to open !!!

Tate's first day of 4th grade.

Taylor's first day of 8th grade.

Trace's first day of sophomore year.

Grandma & Grandpa were visiting Amanda for Easter, so we had Easter on our own. We invited Uncle Christopher to join us. The Easter Bunny even brought Christopher a basket with goodies!

We went to Florida for spring break. This is the view from the house we rented.

Taylor and Grandma watching the fishermen, unaware that they were being
eaten alive by no-see'ums. They were vicious!
Tate and Grandpa getting their rigs ready.

Bill turned 40 this year! He had 8 presents to open, each explaining a piece of his birthday surprise. The first one was a pack of Vegas playing cards. We went to Las Vegas for a weekend and he drove a Nascar on the Vegas Motor Speedway. Happy Birthday Baby!

Tate and his friend Jake were the Wright Brothers for the wax museum. They couldn't smile or talk at all. They were very dedicated to staying in character.

Trace and his friend Cole working on his Eagle Project. Trace chose to collect hazardous waste in our community and take it to be disposed of properly. He was a great leader and had a lot of support from his troop. He did the collection in April and his project was officially completed (including a ridiculous amount of paperwork) in October! Way to go Trace!

This was last year's Thanksgiving. It was supposed to be the snowstorm of 2010, so we decided to stay home instead of making the trek down to St. George. It was the first Thanksgiving we had as our own little family. We even ate in the official dining room and used the special china!
